Independent Sales Rep – Handbags and Accessories

Who’s Anuschka? 

Anuschka means “Like no other.” The Anuschka story started with the idea of a world where art and fashion are fused as one. Anuschka products are a labor of love, hand-painted and handcrafted by artisans for over 30 years. 

Every piece we make is individually hand-painted. The colors and elegant design are a visual feast. A plethora of abstracts, landscapes, nature, and artistic motifs transform each handbag into an object of timeless art. 
 

Anuschka expanded beyond our heritage hand-painted handbags and introduced an embossed tooled leather collection in Spring 2023 to launch printed fabric with leather trim handbags. As a brand, we are expanding into other classifications that will feature our one-of-a-kind artworks. Beyond Scarves, Dusters, and umbrellas, we will launch our art on wood and textile home décor products in 2023. 
 
Anuschka's creations are contemporary masterpieces and speak to the sophisticated woman drawn to a one-of-a-kind design and exceptional craftsmanship. The artisans, craftsmen, and everyone involved take pride in every piece and views them as distinctive works of art. Find more @ www.anuschkaleather.com.
